Just got back.

Wasn't terribly impressed. Beautiful touching film, but it doesn't touch some of the more masterful works we've seen this year. I may have to give it a nod for cinematography, but other than that, I think my list is fairly fixed. I'll post it in a little bit.

In case you can't read that, it says "YOU'RE WRONG".

Um, what?

Isn't this exactly what I said? You must be wrong too then, fool.

It touches them, but in a year of many masterpieces it's just surpassed by a handful of others. This is Top 5, Top 3 level any other year.

OK, fine so you'd separate it by a point or so from me if you used the same scale. Big deal.

I was impressed, but given the response this film received, I was expecting something on the level of No Country or I'm Not There. It wasn't quite.

Still excellent though.

LMP: Well we're gonna need more than the 5 ballots we have so far, so as long as it takes. 10 days, maybe?

Lance: Nice list, but Tomei in Lead? No way. She may have the largest female role in the film, but she's Supporting.

Also, regardless of how the studio was promoting them, I think the Pitt/Affleck classifications should be reversed. The story is more about the tragic arc of Ford. But that's more of a personal call.

Lastly, Eastern Promises for Special Effects? You realize that was actually Viggo's junk and not CGI, right?

Alright, I'll try and at least see 2-3 more movies before then. I'm lacking in several categories right now.

Good catch on Tomei. That's a mistake.

And as for the Pitt/Affleck thing, I actually agree with you, but I'm just going with how the studios and awards committees did it.

All those gory fights and cuts and slashes can fit under special effects for the most part. Well, I guess they more straddle the line between that and makeup, but Cronenberg deserves another mention just for how well he does it all.

I could suggest several "categories" in which you're lacking.

Lance, you could actually get away with doing a swap and putting Bonham-Carter in lead, unless you had a strong #6 in mind. She has enough screen time.

Diving Bell would be in my Top 5 for the year, I found it to be very moving, but, I did not see 2-3 films that might possibly supplant it.

I am enjoying this thread.

He could put in Kelly Macdonald from No Country. She's going in mine for sure.

Surprised to see no Josh Brolin love either.
